Revenue Sharing going away...does it directly affect 49ers?

Article below says the 8 - 10 lowest revenue teams would be most affected as this flow of funds will go away.

Niners will need a new stadium to keep the revenues up.

This will create greater competition for some team to move to LA.
I saw this too, I think the 49ers will be fine though. We make a lot of money and still have lots of cap space anyway. If we make the playoffs or end the year on a high note (which looks easy considering our schedule) I think that we will be fine with income next year and into the future.

Agree with that for sure.

"By Tuesday, the NFL Players Association will challenge the move with a Special Master, claiming owners can't terminate the revenue-sharing model without the union's approval because it was adopted into the 2006 labor agreement, which doesn't expire until March 2011."

I know Scoob, I smell a Players strike coming on too.

Don't put too much stock into revenue sharing actually ending, or player's striking. It may and it may not. Essentially, at this point, this is a negotiating tactic being employed by the league with regards to renewing the contract, it's more of a threat than an actual "it's going to happen" and the Player's association is countering with their own threat. It's all part of the negotiating game.

As long as the 49ers get a new stadium, they don't have to worry. A franchise's value is tied to ticket sales but not just any ticket sales. I'm talking about high-producing tickets sales: luxury suites, corporate suites/sponsorships, PSLs, etc which the current Candlestick can't support.

If NFL revenue sharing goes away, the 49ers will need a new stadium to compete. This is why all the California teams might move to LA because SD, SF, Oak are still playing in 1960s stadiums.

We all may hate Jerry Jones but I remember during the preseason game against Dallas this year that Jones wanted SF to get a new stadium because he understands that a top 5 US market like San Francisco in terms of population and TV market, should never be a low revenue team. A high revenue team in SF benefits the NFL as a whole
